Take Action

 

pbnb reader-

Did you see this?

A bill has been introduced that would forcibly delist gray wolves in

Wyoming, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Without the protections

of the Endangered Species Act, hundreds of wolves, including mothers

and pups, will die.

Donate now and your gift will be matched, dollar- for-dollar, up to

$75,000.

But hurry tomorrow’s the final day for your gift to be matched!

Dear pbnb reader,

Without firing a shot, two U.S. Senators may be about to trigger the

death of hundreds of wolves.

Sens. Ron Johnson (R-WI) and John Barrasso (R-WY) have introduced a

bill that would forcibly delist gray wolves in Wyoming, Michigan,

Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Without the protections of the Endangered

Species Act, hundreds of wolves, including mothers and pups, will die.

We’re fighting tooth and nail to stop these horrific attacks,

and we need your help.

Your urgent donation will help us fight this and other despicable

efforts to turn back the clock on wolf recovery.

Because the situation is so serious, our Board of Directors and

National Council have offered to match your gift dollar-for-dollar, up

to a total of $75,000, until Monday, November 23rd!

By introducing this bill just before final negotiations take place

over the 2016 federal budget, Senators Barrasso and Johnson are hoping

to encourage the inclusion of delisting language into a must-pass

budget bill.

If that happens, how long do you think it will take for more wolves to

be killed?

To add insult to injury, the bill would also prevent federal courts

from ever restoring Endangered Species Act protections for these

wolves, no matter how bad the situation gets!

With federal protections gone, most of Wyoming will immediately be

re-designated a “predator zone,” literally a free-fire zone

where anyone could kill any wolf at any time and for any reason.

With your help, Defenders will mobilize our grassroots community to

oppose this blatant abuse of Congressional power, reach out to the

media to spread the word and continue to fight on Capitol Hill against

this deadly bill.

Please donate today. Your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up

to a total of $75,000 until Monday, November 23rd.

Thanks to you, we’ve been leading the charge for wolf recovery

since wolves were first reintroduced into the Lower 48, more than 20

years ago. With your support, we’ve gone to court and won

repeatedly to make sure wolves get the legal protections they deserve.

We’re pioneering new, non-lethal strategies for wolves to

coexist with people and livestock. With you at our side, we’ll

weather this current crisis and look forward to a day when wolf

recovery is truly complete!

The wildlife you love is counting on you to help. Are you in?

For the wolves,

Jamie Rappaport Clark

President, Defenders of Wildlife
